Donemana's ProStocks World Champion Leonard Dunn switched to the National Bangers at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon and duly took a double victory in both the Tullyroan Challenge Cup and the Destruction Derby. In front of an excellent crowd on a crisp winter's afternoon, Scotland's Charlie Hardie won the Champion of Champions event for the Ninja Karts before Irish Champion Stewart Hanna took their meeting final win. Other feature race wins fell to Ricky Shaw (Lightning Rods), Ashley Hawe (ProStocks) and Allen Cherry (2.0 Hot Rods).

An excellent entry of 2L National Bangers took to the track, and with the favoured Ford Mondeo not permitted there was an great selection of machinery on show. This was headed by Rodney Herron's superb VW Beetle which unsurprisingly won the Best Presented Car Award. The opener was for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup and was a hugely destructive affair, with big hits going in all around the raceway. Leonard Dunn in his unique Mk5 Escort hit the front early on, and kept his head to record a fine win ahead of the only other finisher, Darren Gaffney.

Dunn again led the Allcomers race before hitting trouble, handing the lead and the win to Dublin's Keith McMahon ahead of Conor Kelly and Dwayne Lynch. The Destruction Derby was another crunching event, with Dunn once again hanging on for the win. The Entertainer of the Day Award went to Sean Flaherty, with Ian Crowley taking home a trophy for Best Wreck.

The opener for the Ninja Karts was the Midway Autopoint Individual Achievement Award for those young drivers who hadn't taken a race win during 2016. Portadown's Brandon Litter stamped his authority all over this one, taking a clear victory over Lacey Bevan and Matthew Weir. Brandon then joined the 2016 race winners for the coveted Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm Champion of Champions race, which saw Aaron Ward set the pace from the start. The Ballymena driver fended off a challenge from Litter early on, but soon had British Champion Charlie Hardie from Scotland climbing all over the back of him. Hardie had driven the race of his life to come from the rear of the grid , and he pulled off a sensational win by slipping underneath Ward into turn three nearing the finish. Jack Morrow and Litter inherited second and third in the final analysis after a great race.

Hardie repeated his victory in the support heat, which saw the youngsters cope admirably with the poor track conditions after the Bangers. He led home Daniel Stewart and Morrow in a race which will be remembered for a huge rollover for Litter on the Tullyroan Bend, from which he thankfully escaped unscathed. The Stirling Trophies sponsored meeting final saw Curtis McConkey make a great fist of things out front, but he had no answer to the flying Stewart Hanna who soared through to take the win over Hardie and Bobby Henderson.


An excellent field of Lightning Rods for an out of season fixture produced some great racing, with returnee Stephen Hollywood taking victory in the opening heat over Ricky Shaw and World Champion Gary Beggs. The rest of the day belonged to Shaw however, as the Antrim man took two decisive victories to earn a rise to the star grade for the next meeting. Ricky relegated Hollywood just before half distance in the second heat to take the flag ahead of Nigel Jackson and Beggs, before he romped to a clear final victory over Beggs and Jackson having hit the front on lap seven and never looked back.

The ProStocks hit the twenty car mark, including a trio all the way from Scotland, which made for some excellent action on track. Jay White and Ashley Hawe had turns out front in the opening heat before William McFaul sliced through to take up the lead and ultimately the race win over Raymond Gurney and Del McLaughlin. Garvagh ace McFaul hit the front on lap seven of the second heat, racing clear once again to take his second chequered flag of the day ahead of Hawe and McLaughlin.

McFaul's brace of heat wins saw him relegated further back the grid for the final, which allowed Hawe to hit the front early on and build quite a lead. The star men were struggling to get on terms, but blue grader Gurney was chipping away at Hawe's lead, but he unfortunately just ran out of laps. Hawe thus took a deserved win, with McLaughlin taking third ahead of Stephen Boyd.

A depleted field of 2.0 Hot Rods still produced three watchable races, with Portadown's Feargal McNally claiming both heat victories in his recently debuted Vauxhall. Scotland's Gordon Alexander chased him home in the opener, with local racer Allen Cherry the runner up in heat two. With McNally joining the red grade for the final it was an excellent three way dice for the lead between himself, Alexander and Cherry, once they had edged past early leader Sean Dynes. Places were exchanged on a regular basis, with Cherry the man ahead when it mattered most to lift the trophy. Alexander took second with McNally relegated to fourth behind Dynes for contact during the race.

Amidst some great action and more than a hint of controversy, Portadown's Dave Haugh and Glenavy's Dan Shannon both successfully defended Irish Championship titles at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening. As the bumper crowd enjoyed a superb end of season fireworks display, Haugh took the National Bangers Irish title and Shannon the ProStocks version, whilst other victories in the Greers Volvo sponsored meeting fell to Banbridge's Denver Grattan in the Superstox NIOvalTV Series, Ballymena's Aaron Ward in the Ninja Karts and Portadown's Feargal McNally in the 2.0 Hot Rods.

An excellent field of 2L National Bangers lined up in points scoring order from during the season for the Irish Championship showdown. Dublin duo Steven Reynolds and Stevo McGrath shared the front row, with McGrath hitting the front as all hell broke out behind. John Murray took a hefty knock on the Annaghmore Bend which brought about a race stoppage, with John unfortunately requiring medical attention for a nasty leg injury. Another stoppage quickly followed when Mark Hughes upturned his car, and the atmosphere was at fever pitch as they set off for the restart. McGrath again led over Dave Haugh and Willie McFaul, with little between them as the race entered its final stages. With just over a lap to go Haugh made his move, spinning McGrath out to take up the running, before Hughes, who had been excluded as the cause of the earlier stoppage, returned to the track to illegally remove Haugh whilst going against the flow of traffic. Amidst the ensuing confusion, the Race Steward instigated the 'Malcolm Girling Rule', which sees the leader reinstated to the win if illegally removed inside the last three laps of a championship event. Haugh thus retained the Irish title he won twelve months ago, with McFaul and Reynolds the podium finishers.
The Allcomers race saw Steven Bolton remove Reynolds very early on, only for Reynolds to exact his revenge illegally on the infield. As their feud continued, Race Control were left with no option but to stop the race. At the restart Leonard Dunn, the current ProStocks World Champion, showed that he can handle a National Banger too by grabbing a solid victory over Aaron Kelly and Paul Compelli. The meeting finished with an excellent DD, which had a couple of stoppages for Compelli in trouble and then a fire on Marty McKiernan's car. It boiled down to a fight between McGrath and Stephen Boyd, with Stevo managing to finish off Boyd to take the win. Boyd took both the Best Presented Car and Entertainer of the Day awards, whilst Murray had some satisfaction despite his injury as he received the Best Wreck trophy.

The other Irish Championship title on offer was in the ProStocks, and as the pack battled furiously behind it allowed the pole man, European Champion Stephen McCready, to edge clear of defending champion Dan Shannon. The two were right on the ragged edge as they circulated little more than a cars length apart, and as the laps dwindled away it was going to be a do or die effort from Shannon on the final lap. Into turn three for the final time he went for the kill, taking McCready wide but not unseating him from the lead. As they came off the final turn, Shannon knew he had to spin McCready out to retain his title, but although he managed to spin the lead car McCready got the verdict on the line despite crossing it backwards! It was a sensational finish, but McCready's car then failed the post race technical checks for a minor infringement, but an infringement nonetheless. That elevated Shannon to the championship win ahead of Stephen Boyd and Robbie Wright.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a huge tussle between two former World Champions, Tam Agnew and Ryan Abernethy. They swapped hits and the lead on numerous occasions before Agnew made the telling move nearing the end by dumping Abernethy out wide to the wall to land the win. Ryan recovered for second ahead of Raymond Gurney, but it was Agnew who tasted his first victory in some time with a great drive.

The Grand Final of the lucrative NIOvalTV Series was the main event for the Superstox, with Cyril Hawe leading the opening heat until rapid blue grader Lee Davison charged past to record the win. As Aaron McNeilly and Sean Mark rounded out the top three, there was a huge battle between all the star men further back. Heat two followed a similar pattern with Hawe losing his early lead to Davison, who romped home to secure a rise to the red grade which has been on the cards for some time now. Mark and Denver Grattan chased him home.
Points scored over the three series meetings decided the grid for the NIOvalTV Grand Final, which saw McNeilly take a very impressive pole position ahead of Grattan, with Gary Chambers and Jordan Robinson on row two. Grattan quickly surged ahead as McNeilly spun off early on the Tullyroan Bend. Davison was on a charge from down the grid, relegating Chambers to go second at half distance. Try a Lee might, he couldn't get on terms with Grattan as Denver took the victory in fine style to receive a superb trophy and some race tyres courtesy of the sponsors. Davison and Chambers completed the podium finishers.

The local kids in their Ninja Karts were joined by welcome Scottish visitor Scott Allardyce, with Crumlin's Corey Stirling taking a commanding win in the opening heat from pole position over Sam Percy and Bobby Henderson. Heat two saw Lily Gallagher and then the impressive Brandon Litter takes turns out front, before Irish Champion Stewart Hanna took over to take a fine win over Litter and Gallagher.
The track was somewhat slippery for the final of the Stars of Tomorrow Challenge, with Litter the first to show in the lead ahead of Percy. The man on a mission however was Aaron Ward, who had started well down the field after a heat two disqualification. He was relishing the tricky circuit, and swept past Litter to take up the running and race home to a great victory indeed. Hanna and Gallagher completed the top three at the end of a thrilling championship race.

Aaron Beattie, a recent newcomer to the 2.0 Hot Rods ranks, led their opening heat from flag to flag for a morale boosting win ahead of Christopher Kincaid and Feargal McNally. Brian Cherry was the first to show in heat two, leading until half distance before succumbing to pressure from Kincaid who took a fine win over McNally and Ryan McClure.
Cherry led the final for the opening laps, before he was unceremoniously bumped into a spin by McClure, which earned the latter a disqualification. That handed the lead to McNally, and he never looked back as he gave his new Vauxhall it's maiden victory over Kincaid and Beattie.
